Supporters rally behind Jesse Jackson Jr.

CHICAGO – Two Chicago Congressmen have come out to show support for Jesse Jackson Jr. and his family, and say they're disappointed more politicians aren't doing the same.

U.S. Reps. Danny Davis and Bobby Rush joined about 200 people Saturday for the weekly service at the Rev. Jesse Jackson's Rainbow/PUSH coalition in Chicago.

They joined bishops and ministers on stage in a special prayer for the Jackson family.

Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned from the U.S. House this week, citing his battle with bipolar disorder. He also acknowledged he is the subject of a federal probe and said he's cooperating with investigators.

After the service, Davis and Rush said they have not seen the former congressman and don't know where he is. They said they hope Jackson can focus on getting healthy.
